Lions in the street and roaming
Dogs in heat, rabid, foaming
A beast caged in the heart of a city.
The body of his mother
Rotting in the summer ground.
He fled the town.
He went down South and crossed the border
Left the chaos and disorder
Back there over his shoulder.
One morning he awoke in a green hotel
With a strange creature groaning beside him.
Sweat oozed from its shining skin.
Is everybody in?
The ceremony is about to begin.
